North-West Part of France with Paris major routes c1802

by Laurie & Whittle

Superb antique map of France. Laurie & Whittle c1802. A New Map of the North-West Part of France divided into its Departments With the most frequented Routes to Paris. Published 24th July, 1802 by Laurie & Whittle, No. 53 Fleet Street, London (Successors to the late Mr Sayer.)

Large map of north-west France, with roads from Paris in all directions. It also shows the sea routes between France and England. With beautiful original colour and clarity of engraving this map would be a wonderful choice for anyone travelling between England and Paris... or for any lover of travel in France.

From Thomas Kitchin's map of 1790, Laurie and Whittle have created a large, elegant map with their distinctive beautiful soft-coloured wash differentiating each department, outlining of each region, and addition of coloured wash to the ocean, coastline, and cartouche. The picture does not do it justice.

Approximate size, with vertical and horizontal fold, 62 x 82 cm (24 x 32 inches). Measurement to plate mark around map is almost as large. There is slight vertical creasing about one third across map from left at top - but it is not severe enough to be distracting. The rear of double fold corner of this map have been reinforced with archival tape. The map price reflects its condition.
